Meet Time: Saturday, August 13th at 10:30am

Meet Location: Firehouse Donuts in Cottonwood --
1621 E Mingus Ave, Cottonwood, AZ 86326
Firehouse shares a parking lot with "Main Stage" on the southeast corner of the intersection of Mingus Ave. and Main St.
Circle K is across the street if you need to gas up or grab snacks prior to departure.


Bring: Plenty of water, snacks, trail lunch, sunscreen, & whatever else your heart desires



Route: I've secured another permit for Casner Mountain which limits this run to a max of 10 vehicles and 25 people (minimum 3 vehicles). I'm planning on starting out in Cottonwood and hitting dirt at the south end of the Bill Grey Road, just off 89A, and ending approximately 76 miles later at the top of Schnebly Hill by I-17. I'm hoping that by starting a little later, at 10:30am, this run will be more friendly to anyone coming up from the Valley or points farther. My time estimate for the last Casner run was pretty good - about 6 hours. The master plan for this run is actually a little longer - I'm guessing about 8-9 (you gotta drive all the way up here, might as well be worth it, right!?). Here's the approximate timeline:
10:45 - Depart Firehouse Donuts
11:00 - Finish air-down & hit the dirt
11:45 - South Gate (Begin Casner Mountain)
2:00 - North Gate & Trail Lunch
5:00 - Back to 89A for Oak Creek Canyon
6:00 - Start Schnebly Hill Rd
7:00 - Veer on to Hot Loop (skipping if any nearby monsoon action)
7:15 - Overlook (& epic dispersed camping spot) for Sunset (official time is 7:17pm)
8:00 - End of Schnebly Hill, Air Up, Disperse on I-17 (or go to Cliff Castle Casino if we're feelin frisky!)

A couple things to note:
*There's a paved section in the middle of this run: Oak Creek Canyon on 89A - one of the most scenic drives in the USA. It's about 19 miles long and, except for the first 1/4 mile, I'm pretty sure the max speed is 35mph. I do not plan on airing up for this section due to the low speed and the rockiness of the next section when we get back to dirt. Nothing we'll be doing is overly challenging or technical so no-body should be airing down drastically (I'll be planning on ~20lbs).

*The first section of this run (Bill Grey Rd) is likely to be dusty as all hell.

*Restroom opportunities will be very limited for this run, particularly for ladies (Casner runs along a ridge line with very little room or cover on either side before dropping off into wilderness).

*If anyone can't make it for Casner but wants to join in for Schnebly, just meet us at the Schnebly Hill trailhead or jump in the caravan when we come through Sedona.

*Communications will be on CB Channel 16. If you have a backup or spare handheld please bring it!

*I forgot the sunscreen last time and wound up ka-BURRRRNT. Be sure to apply!

*Sandbox GPX attached

Lists updated!

Also, and I feel like this should go without saying for any runs posted up here, all [capable] vehicles are welcome! Our runs aren't limited to FJs just because we're on AZFJ. Tacos, 4-Runners, Tundras, XTerras, Isuzus, Fords, Chevys, and even Jeeps are equally invited. Feel free to invite friends even if they aren't Toyotaddicted.

Put me in please. I can definitely make it for this.

But, if we are allrady up on 89 A above the switchbacks, couldnt we drop over to I-17 and then come down Schnebley? Doing the hotloop earlier. Then a nice dinner in Sedona or Money donations at Cliff Castle? We would be on freeway for a it in under pressure tires... but...

Dravur I definitely considered going that route. I decided against it because, in my opinion, it would be too far to drive on I-17 aired down (over 13 interstate miles at 75mph on 20lb tires vs about 18 scenic miles at 25-35mph). Or we'd have to air up in the middle of the run and either air down again or get bounced around too much on Schnebly.
